Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How does Juliet's Character and Language Change during the course of the play? When we first see Juliet in the beginning of the play she seems to be very shy and timid. I can see this because of the way she talks "Madam I am here, what is your will". She also seems very obedient to her parents and not much of an outgoing person. she also seems quit withdrawn when it comes to the subject of love and marriage I think this is because she is still a child and still thinks of boy as "icky". In Act III.scene ii Tybalt is killed by Romeo and Juliet is left reconciling her love for Romeo. ...read more.

Middle

Remember, at this point she doesn't know that Romeo acted in revenge for Tybalt's killing of Mercutio, who was his best friend. It is as though she is brainstorming to cover up her real feelings for what she's thinking. But Juliet can't help but feel a slight bit unhappy about the fact of her cousin Mercutio. Juliet's changing feelings towards the Nurse are reflected in the language she uses when speaking to her in Act 2 Scene 5 and later in Act 3 Scene 5 .in this scene it shows her showing her affection for the nurse and that she is worried about her safety "O God, she comes! O honey Nurse, what news?" she is also kind of sucking up to the nurse so she can get the information about Romeo from her. ...read more.

Conclusion

You can see Juliet's response to her lady Capulet by looking at what she says, she mocks her mother by saying "Now by Saint Peter's Church and Peter too, He shall not make me there a joyful bride". Juliet then goes on to say how she hates her parents for forcing her to fall in love with some one who she doesn't feel anything for, she loves Romeo and her heart is only set on one person, if I where her I would tell my parents that I don't want to marry Paris .I think that she doesn't want to disappoint her parent's by telling them that she's married Romeo and doesn't want to marry Paris. Throughout this whole play we see Juliet's Language and Attitude change from and obedient girl to a flamboyant and disobedient rebel which ultimately cost's her ,her life.
